We used the Pixel 3 with our Tele 58mm lens on Portrait Mode and a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 50mm Lens f/1.2 to see what's the major difference.

Canon 5DM4 vs. Pixel 3 with Moment’s Tele 58mm Lens

Can YOU Tell the Difference?

Moment Tele 58mm Lens - Our new redesigned lens for tighter, closer, crispier shots.
Our super sexy Tele 58mm lens in action.

Our little lady and beloved filmmaker, Taylor, put our new Tele 58mm lens to the test against her Canon 5D Mark IV. As a professional photographer with years of experience under her belt, she wanted to remark just how crisp and clean the new Tele lens matches against her big ole’ trusty steed. So, what better way to do that than to cram a butt load of fellow co-workers in Moment’s gorgeous HQ office with aesthetically pleasing plants? Nothing. The answer is nothing.

We used the Pixel 3 with our Tele 58mm lens on Portrait Mode and a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 50mm Lens f/1.2.

To start, we had level the playing field by adjusting each device’s specs to match the other. Both have been shot with the exact same manual settings and were slapped with Taylor’s mad editing skills. Each image you see in within these comparison(s) are as close to one another’s tech specs as possible. This includes:

  • Raw File Sizes
  • Aperture Settings of f/1.8
  • Similar Focal Length of ~50mm
  • Same ISO and Shutter Speed
  • Same Edited Presets / Filters

Our results were impressive. Perhaps the biggest difference you’ll see between each image is the price tag of which each of the gear is valued. Stunning… have we convinced you to buy the new Tele 58mm lens, or wha-?! ;)

That’s a wrap! Much love to the Team Leads at Moment for flying into Seattle for some drinks, talks, and laughs to accompany the day’s board meetings and making room for a shoot in the process. It was a lot of fun.
